Hi all!

I decided to blog about how I am going to create an open source
desktop application which downloads videos from various video
sharing websites (like youtube, break, metacafe, etc.).

I decided to use MinGW as a compiler for this application and
libcurl for communicating over HTTP protocol.

I just wrote a post on how I got libcurl compiled with
MinGW. The post is written in a very detailed manner and is
suitable for beginners.

The compilation process with MinGW did not go as easy as the
INSTALL file says, and I believe that the information there is
outdated for compiling libcurl with MinGW. Someone should
update that portion of INSTALL.

What do you think about the article?
